  • Lots to like, but a few trip-ups along the way...

    The tag team Battle Royal was a fun way to start the show, and it gave the Major Brothers a much needed push in the right direction, even if they weren't successful in their quest for gold.

    It's also nice to see Jamie Noble getting more and more airtime, even if he's portrayed as a somewhat baffoonish character, and he's not displaying his full array of moves.

    Finlay vs Rey was nice and long, and it was great to see Finlay win cleanly with a great counter before it. Finlay's a great talent, and seeing a heel win with his intellect is refreshing.

    The "No Holds Barred" match was pretty silly, considering they didn't leave the ring and no weapons were used, so it seemed totally pointless and stupid. Khali tapping out was a surprise, but a Taker win was expected, no doubt building him up for his Survivor Series match.

    An above average show for sure - there was lots to like, and most of the dross was short.
